What Not To Do At Your Zoo!

What to do has been done a time or ten at my den. Now for today we will go the other way. Just because I want to as if the cat does it any other way at his zoo.


The cat insecure?
Pfft I just endure.
The cat makes it through.
Just use whoopdi friggin doo.

Don't take to heart,
The hatred of an old fart.
Get a bad review,
Whoopdi friggin doo.

Don't feel bad,
If the writing pisses one off a tad.
If it turns them blue,
Whoopdi friggin doo.

Need a break,
Feel free to take.
Don't write for a day or two,
Whoopdi friggin doo.

Brain says you suck,
You're crap outta luck.
Actually it swears at you,
But whoopdi friggin doo.

People don't get it,
Your writerly fit.
Say right on cue,
Whoopdi friggin doo.

Think you are done,
But have to edit a ton.
It will be better to view,
So whoopdi friggin doo.

The house is a mess,
While you play character chess.
Hire a cleaning crew,
Or just go whoopdi friggin doo.

Stuck in a rut.
Dog sniffs your butt?
Try something new.
Give the old a whoopdi friggin doo.

Is it engrained in your head?
Can I put this to bed?
If not, here's your final clue,
Just give a whoopdi friggin doo.

There we go the cat is done with today's whoopdi friggin doo show. No matter who you are at every single sand bar, you can't please everyone. So don't try and just give whoopdi friggin doo a run. So say it in mass with my little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

  1. If I have to do what I want
    It will not please everyone
    Just do it
    Just a bit
    Will invariably gain acceptance

    1. haha edits suck
      Rather go feed a duck
      Going over and over it
      Every little bit
      Can sure annoy

      So away one must go
      At their show

    1. I take a break all the time

  10. I have seen that just doing one's job with heart is enough to get good results. When we try to impress others, we fail.

    But professional writing needs both, so I don't know how you writers deal with it. Must be difficult.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yeah trying to impress
      Can leave one in a mess
      Just do what you like

  20. All excellent advice! And I can relate to these vicariously, watching my husband in action for so many years. Writer's don't have it easy like administrators do... I used to like to rub that in from time to time when I was working (and could kick my feet up and do NOTHING when I got home). :)

  23. Dear Pat, yesterday I went out three times to shovel snow. It took 45 minutes each time, but the snow was light and beautiful and sparkly, so this was an easy task. We got 11 inches, which is a record here in western Missouri. I, of course, did no writing and haven't been writing for several weeks. And today I come to your blog and discover that instead of stewing or musing about this lack of effort, I can say "whoopdi friggin doo" and feel like "what the heck," there's always another day. So thanks for putting this all in perspective! Peace.

  35. Cute Pat. Yah, sometimes you just have to work with what you got. Treat it like a dog does---if you can't eat it or play with it, pee on it and walk away. Or, you can get those nice little bitty pieces of paper and write down your woes and drop it in the cat box. The cats know exactly what to do with it. Trust me, you don't want to take it back to worry over it after that. :-)
